Ethics & Sustainability
Handmade in USA by Marina Merchant-Dest. Meet the founder here
I use 90% Tencel and 10% Spandex fabric. Tencel is actually biodegradable which makes it a closed loop fabric because it can be put back into the earth. (Unlike Polyester, Nylon, Acrylic and other synthetic fabrics.
I purchase my fabric from a small business in Los Angeles, California.

Labels and Pouches
When it comes to labels, and pouches I order from small shops on etsy. I realize the importance of supporting small businesses and I appreciate how much more care and craftsmanship goes into each order.
Etsy also carbon offsets any orders made through etsy which is awesome for the planet!
Notecards and Tags
I order my notecards and tags from Moo which is a printing company based in Rhode Island. These items are printed in USA.
Packaging: Tissue Paper, Stickers and Slips
I ship all clothes out in a Home-Compostable packing slip. That way you can create minimal waste as well! My tissue paper and stickers are ordered through "noIssue" which is an eco-conscious company.
All items and products are made in small batches. I am proud of how open and transparent I am in sharing the different aspects of my business.
